Music for a King: Chamber Music in the Bush 2017
12 November @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm AEDT
Part of Chamber Music in the Bush 2017
Greg Dikmans and Peter Hagen present a programme of works by Quantz, Benda, J.S. and C.P.E. Bach and the King (Frederick The Great) himself.
“Music For a King” celebrates a time and place that we now can only imagine. Join us to come closer to this once exquisite reality.
Frederick the Great of Prussia attracted the best artists and musicians in Europe to his court. Part of creating such a cultured court included building an opera house in Berlin within two years of his coming to the throne. As a highly competent flute player he performed the many concertos and sonatas his flute teacher, Quantz, composed for him.
